Notre Dame defeated Boston College today 76-49, but also lost star guard Demetrius Jackson to a hamstring injury early in the first half. Jackson’s injury was reported on Twitter by ESPN’s Jeff Goodman.
Notre Dame’s Demetrius Jackson is out for the rest of the game due to a pulled hamstring. Good news that it’s not knee-related.

The other good news is that Fighting Irish coach Mike Brey said that Jackson is considered day-to-day and will hopefully be back this week, but he is still a big loss for Notre Dame nonetheless. Jackson has stepped up tremendously after Jerian Grant’s departure to the NBA, averaging 17.6 points and 5.3 assists per game while shooting 50 percent from the field.
That said, though Zach Auguste and Bonzie Coulson should be able to step up in Jackson’s absence, there’s no doubt that he will be missed and fans will look forward to his eventual return.
